The lid does not function. It appears that when my daughter in law was here to help us she overstuffed the can an since then the lid does not lift. I think the plastic part that makes the lid open was broken off. Is there a way of replacing the lid?? I am not able to read the modelA. Thank you for your question. If you aren't able to verify the model number you will need to contact Nine Stars directly. You can find their contact information here.
